Welcome to our NICUties Tribe! 

Many twin parents will spend time in the NICU, whether it's due to a high risk pregnancy or other complications. Even though your chances of holding your twin babies may be limited at first, there are small and simple moments that make the long waits worth it. 

Mama's Moments

There is a remarkable connection between a mama and her twins. For months, she has cared for and loved her babies during her twin pregnancy. The NICU can be a place for many mama moments that you will always remember!

Papa's Touches

Because it's mom who carries the babies during the twin pregnancy, dad needs his special twin baby bonding time too! Papa's touch can be as comforting for your twins as they feel the warmth of the contact.

Twin Love

Twins spend a lot of time cuddling and being together in the womb. It is only natural for them to reach out for each other and want to hold the other close. Watch for the sweet moments when your twins extend their arms or hands to touch each other!
